Tyrese is still speaking, guys.

This time, he is ranting about his failed marriage with his ex-wife, Norma, and this time, he's revealed something pretty serious about the motive behind their former union. In fact, some may say he's finally gone a bit too far.

Get more on Tyrese — specifically, his health — with BET Breaks, above.

The actor recently visited the Rickey Smiley Morning Show where he explained that he only married Norma to keep her in the United States, as she, at the time, was a British citizen. He claims that he wanted to avoid the hassle of having to travel to another country to see his child as Norma had gotten pregnant with their daughter, Shayla.

"We had an angel, but I married you to keep you in the country," he said. "I never married you because we were happily married. You're from London. I married you because we had a baby on the way and I had to do whatever I had to do so I'm not traveling all the way to London just to spend quality time with my baby. So, now you're running around painting this picture, like we was [singing 'Here Comes the Bride']. We got married and there was like seven people there."

In an attempt to justify his words, he added that his over-the-top demeanor proves that he was not committed to their marriage.

"Like, I am the most flashiest, flamboyant dude, other than Floyd Mayweather. There's nothing that's low key and quiet," he continued. "You know that I married her to keep her in the country."

Tyrese and Norma were married from 2007 to 2009.
